  1. Xbox ONE backwards compatibility but now option to purchase


    I found an irritating bug that prevented me from buying an Xbox 360 game on my Xbox ONE, although the game is compatible it is not possible to purchase it on the Xbox ONE.

    A Microsoft support person told me that one would need find a Xbox 360, log in there to purchase the game to get it available to download and play on the Xbox ONE. As I got the Xbox ONE because i don't have my 360 anymore. It only makes sense that if the
    console supports playing a game it should be able to be purchased on it as well.

    :)

    If you're on a Xbox One console, and are trying to purchase the game it would say whether or not you can under backwards compatibility. If the option isn't there, it's not backwards compatible but you can also check here: https://www.xbox.com/en-AU/xbox-one/backward-compatibility

    It could depend on what you're purchasing. If you're purchasing backwards compatible games on the One, the Microsoft account balance is not a valid payment option.
